I am trying to use your ribbon in a sample application,

just when using the ribbon, the application size is growing to about 50 MB !!!

your Ribbon demo application takes about 180 MB !!!

this is not a good criteria, and we cannot use your components if there is no solution for the memory size taken.

Thank you for your kind words. We are working on reducing memory usage but do not expect too much. A .NET-bitmap-based-ui framework can hardly be light. A regular form app with one button takes up 9.81MB on a 32-bit Windows XP. An empty Elegant Ribbon app (only with a ribbon control) takes up 25.68MB.

This forum thread is dedicated to the Prof-UIS library product which is an MFC extension library written in C++. If your question is related to the ribbon bar control that is part of Prof-UIS library, then please take a look at its memory usage:

If your question is related to Elegant Ribbon, it will take more memory because it is a .NET application. However, please note that the Ribbon UI is a heavy-duty sample with more than one thousand images loaded into memory. This is done to emulate Microsoft Word in terms of the ribbon. This sample is not optimized for memory. So please try another sample or create your own project to evaluate memory consumption.

Thanks for your response


i told to you that i tested the Elegant Ribbon in a new project without any other components or controls, just the Ribbon alone, with only one ribbon page, without any image; so the size of the applicaiton was 50 MB in the memory.

With my respect to your beautiful Ribbon, i cannot use on the current state !!! and really i need a solution, because it is the only and only RightToLeft .net Ribbon on the world.

what i think that the size can be more efficent if you want either it is a .net code.
